Note: The TIM is about teaching, not technology. The placement of videos on the TIM is based entirely on the teaching practices demonstrated in the lesson and not on the specific technology employed. Simple or even out-dated technology can be used at the higher levels of technology integration just as the latest or most complex technology can be used at lower levels.
